Sea Breeze

Ahhhh, I love the feeling of sand in my toes !!

Toes at the beach -

















This week I’m vacationing in the sun and I’m sure I’ll enjoy lots of sand in my toes and perhaps a Sea Breeze or two.  Yes,  I’ll hopefully enjoy a gentle breeze as I sit on my balcony looking at the ocean,  but I’m talking about Sea Breeze, the cocktail!

A Sea Breeze is a mixture of vodka, cranberry juice and grapefruit juice.  However, the recipe depends on whom you ask…. some make it heavier on the cranberry juice, others make it heavier on the grapefruit  juice. So apparently it’s up to you! (Well, isn’t it always, anyway?!)

Here’s how I’m enjoying them lately.  Instead of grapefruit juice I’m using Pellegrino grapefruit– have you tried it ?  Delish!  It adds a  bit of fizz and I like that you don’t get so much acid from the actual juice.   AND…. because I think lime makes everything better, I’m adding the juice of 1/2 a lime.

My take on a Sea Breeze - from a











I like this drink because it’s light and fresh – not heavy as other tropical drinks.  Below, I’m including the recipe for one drink , and then I’ve upped the quantities for a pitcher full.  btw – this in not a sponsored post by Pellegrino – I just like the stuff!!
